United 3 - 0 Tottenham

|After his goal, Welbeck really impressed me.|
United's play was so eye pleasing today that I wished the game never ended. The first half was a keenly contested affair, with United enjoying slight superiority over the Spurs. The second half was a masterclass of attacking football. And I'm not exaggerating. There were quite a handful of players who impressed me today. Let's start with Danny Welbeck. He was a tad quiet up until the 60th minute but as soon as we scored that all important first goal, our Welbeck was 5 times the player he was during the first half. Talk about what a goal could do to a player's confidence! He managed to score a goal and produce a stunning assist. Even his celebration was a class act. It showed his joy at finally making it at Old Trafford... probably his lifelong dream.
|Jones - Impressive|
Another player who impressed me today was Jones. He was immense at the back. The other youngsters forming part of our inexperienced back four did quite well as well and De Gea managed to keep his first clean sheet for United, albeit with a few tense moments. Cleverley had a decent game as well. He came agonisingly close to scoring and managed to assist Welbeck for our first goal. However, my man of the match has got to go to Anderson. His passing and movement was first class and he managed to score a really good goal. I'm not too convinced about his dancing though! Ando looks like he's enjoying playing football again and he has managed to find his scoring boots as well. He scored some goals at the end of last season and started this season with a fine goal. More of the same please! Rooney, who's looking really lively this season, put the final nail in Tottenham's coffin with a fine header.
Overall I'm delighted. This is the way I want United to play football. We managed to rip apart a decent Tottenham team with a bunch of youngsters(very talented youngsters!). The class of '11 is looking good, indeed, the kids are alright!
